National Night Out - August 2!
The Skokie Police Department’s Crime Prevention/Community Relations Unit hosts the 5th Annual National Night Out Campaign on Tuesday, August 2 from 6 to 9 p.m., at Gross Point Park, 9100 Gross Point Road.
Curb Address Number Painting Prohibited
The Village of Skokie has not contracted any private service providers to paint address numbers on residential curbs. Recently, a handbill was distributed in the Timber Ridge area and possibly other locations in the community by unknown persons without a permit advertising for an unknown company to provide this service.
Further, the Village of Skokie has not authorized the painting/marking of any Village maintained curbs. The Skokie Police Department is advising residents not to pay for this service, as it is likely a scam.
If you see anyone distributing fliers advertising this or painting/defacing curbs, please call 9-1-1. Skokie Police/Fire personnel are very capable of reading house and building numbers as posted on both the front and rear of properties as required by Village code. Residents should be sure to keep address numbers clear from tree/shrub overgrowth.
Target is Coming to Skokie
Target announced today development of a 33,000-square-foot retail store on the southwest corner of Dempster Street and Bronx Avenue in Skokie.
